Vinyl siding is a durable siding material that can resist most weather conditions but it is far from being completely invulnerable. There will be times that strong windstorms may blow a piece off your wall, or a stray hailstone may mark your siding and cause breaks and cracks on its surface. There’s no need to worry because most homeowners insurance covers storm, wind, or
hail damaged siding restoration.
Our professionals at Viking Contractors, LLC specialize in dealing with insurance-related repairs and can help you deal with damaged siding after a storm. Here are a few reminders to help make the experience as easy and convenient as possible.
Trust Only Licensed and Certified Professionals
The aftermath of a storm brings with it some unscrupulous individuals who offer tempting deals and promotions about home repairs. You want to avoid these scams at all costs. In the event that they do perform services, you’ll often find their work to be inferior and can even leave your home in a worse condition than before.
As one of the most trusted storm or
hail damaged roof repair and siding specialists in the Twin Cities area, we have maintained an A plus rating with the Better Business Bureau. Our work has also earned us an Elite Service Professional standing with HomeAdvisor.
There will be cases when the damage is small and easily patched up with a quick DIY solution. These problems include minor scratches on the surface or dirt or grime buildup. You may choose to paint over superficial scratches but keep in mind that if you do so, you may have to add repainting to your regular maintenance program.
Avoid Pressure Washers
Vinyl siding boards are not designed to withstand extended pressure washing. If you want to get rid of grime and dirt, use a stiff-bristle brush or a sponge instead. Pressure washers run the risk of misshaping the boards and can cause structural damage that can set you back hundreds of dollars or more in repairs alone.
